This is a great tasty potato salad for a summer day. Great with grilled steak, chicken, or fish. It is best if made early in the day if you are serving it for dinner! Prep time includes minimum refrigeration time.

Oh yum! My family really loved this! We served this along side some grilled morrocan chicken with lime (on kabobs) some grilled pineapple and baked beans. oh we had such a wonderful dinner! this potato salad is fabulous. My sister is begging me to send her the recipe, as she said it sounds delicious :-) I will let you know what she thinks! Thanks for the recipe!! I will make this again the next time I want potato salad! I did one thing different. I had to saute my onions a bit as I cannot eat raw onions. I just sauted them lightly and refrigerated them until they were very cold, and added them to the salad when told to. Other than that I did everything as suggested. I used light mayo with no problems. Wonderful flavors!
